Global Perspectives (Year 7)

Foreign students who do not have a high enough level of Spanish to follow the Spanish compulsory subjects (Language and Social Sciences) study Spanish as a foreign language. At the end of Year 9, all pupils sit their first formal external exam: IGCSE Second Language English.

Key Stage 4

In Key Stage 4, the IGCSE (International Certificate of Secondary Education) subjects determine the curriculum, based on compulsory subjects and options. The IGCSE programme of study covers the full Key Stage, beginning in Year 10 and reaching completion in Year 11 with the external IGCSE examinations.

The compulsory IGCSE subjects for all Key Stage 4 students are:

Apart from British subjects, all Key Stage 4 students take Spanish Language, Literature, History and Geography as compulsory requirements for Spanish students in international education in Spain. PE and PSHE are also compulsory although students in Key Stage 4 do not sit formal exams in these 2 subjects.

The students take the following external examinations.

Year 9 (2º ESO)

    • IGCSE English as a Second Language

Year 11 (4º ESO)

    • IGCSEs in core and option subjects

The IGCSE is the international version of the examinations taken by students in England and Wales of the same age. The students take different examinations in up to 10 subjects. These examinations are taken in English.
